The game has changed so much in the last few years, that the traditional back to the basket big is almost obsolete, in fact, a lot of coaches are trending more to the 6’7, 6’8 high motor athletic big as opposed to the traditional 7 footer. In this article, we take a look at 10 undersized west coast big men that fit that mold. 

  1. Takai Emerson-Hardy Takai Emerson-Hardy 6'7" | PF Vanden | 2022 State 6’7 PF Vanden (CA) 2022 (#5PHNC 2022) - May have the most skill of any big on the list. TEH can score with his back to the basket, or off dribble drives. His value comes from his ability to use his quick second jump to rebound the basketball. 
  2. Jeremiah Nyarko Jeremiah Nyarko 6'7" | PF St. John Bosco | 2022 State #72 Nation 6’8 PF St John Bosco (CA) 2022 (#4PHSC 2022) - Big time R&J ability packaged in a solid frame. Easily hedge’s and switches ball screens and can get out in transition and score. 
  3. Quinton Webb Quinton Webb 6'7" | PF Etiwanda | 2022 State 6’7 PF San Ysidro (CA) 2022 (#26PHSC 2022) (featured image) - Mikey Williams Mikey Williams 6'3" | SG San Ysidro | 2023 #1 Nation teammate at SY, Pogo stick style athlete that has an explosive first jump and quick second jump. 
  4. Tyus Parrish-Tillman Tyus Parrish-Tillman 6'6" | PF Fresno Christian | 2022 6’7 PF Fresno Christian (CA) 2022
